Storyline

The little mermaid rescues a prince from drowning and falls in love with him. To be with him, she makes a deal with the evil sorceress: her beautiful voice against a life on land. It seems to work at first, the prince is enchanted with her lovely appearance. But the memory of a foreign princess still haunts him: The one who found him on the beach where the mermaid had left him, and whom he (of course) believes to be his saviour. To resolve this mistake is too much for the mute little mermaid, and not even her father, king of all seas, can help her in the impending catastrophe. Written by Wilhelm Noeker <wnoeker@t-online.de>

Quotes

[addressing the Little Mermaid]
Captain: You look very pale. You shouldn't have sailed with us. That's not for women. If I told you what my divers have seen in the ocean, you would certainly be horrified. Giant snakes with two heads. And many octopusses that break a man's bones and suck out his blood!

MAGIC !
4 January 2001 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Forget everything you may have seen regarding the "Little Mermaid". This movie is by far the best adaptation of the story. We all know more or less the story but there is some magic in this film, the way Kachyna used the colors (mostly blue).The main actress is just amazing and her submarine kingdom is beautiful. One word to describe this movie: MAGIC
